water- at camp and on the go
« on: December 02, 2016, 08:36:29 PM »
i've read a bunch here about drinking water and the
importance of having it. i carry some water most
everywhere i go. i have water stored here and at
the outpost and carry water in my vehicle, the
amount depending on where i plan on going.
i usually have at least a half a gallon in the truck
at all times. i usually have some of those pills
for disinfecting unclean water, but i prefer to
boil any suspect water, and most always have
some way with me to do so. i have tried some
of those straws where you suck water through
a filter, but that was awful slow and hard to do.
in fairness, this was more than 10 years ago, so
maybe they've improved since then. if i were
to depend on some kind of filtering something
that was affordable and lightweight i'd have to
get one of those sawyer squeeze do-dads. i
don't think i would want any more of those
straw things unless they were much improved.

I've read that the LifeStraw products are great, and the "personal" one filter 1.75 liters per second:

I have a life straw and about half a gallon worth of water in every bag.

Have you ever looked around at the group of people you are in and thought, "If the Zombie Apocalypse happens right now, this is what I have to work with."?
